Pretty dank... but why a g3258 at this point, did you have it laying around?
Dear lord, this is beautiful! Nice job!
Sweet build, I dig the stickerbombing. I might do that on one of my existing builds too!
If you're going to sell it, just download and install a fresh copy of Windows 10. You no longer need to pay for it to use the basic features. Win10 will work indefinitely except for the theme/aesthetic settings which are only unlocked with an activated copy.
How is the noise on the SeaSonic flex atx?
It doesn't matter that you can get something better now for cheap, I think the most important thing is that you're having fun with your pc, and trying new build techniques. I for one think that this is a neat build, and wish your board was better so I could see how far you could push the Pentium (for scientific purposes). +1, and don't let haters bother you, this is an awesome build!
As a Matrix fan, I must comment and give props for this amazingly awesome custom!
That's pretty impressive, they look pretty much perfect in the photos. How long did it take for you to cut the holes?
Dang, I'm jealous of everyone who has hole saws and can successfully cut the top of these cases! I only had a hand drill strong enough to make a hole pattern and that was annoying >< Anyway, nice job! +1!!!
Sweet build, but what I really want to know is where did you get that awesome desk?
Beautiful build, also +1 for Ryzen! I might be getting one later this year, I've always been an intel user, but the Ryzen chips seem pretty good for work related stuff.
Nice, clean build!
Usually positive air pressure is better, from what I've heard, because it can always be pushed out of vent holes and any openings and your overall temp inside the case should be lower. I've modded my Metis so that the gpu has a venthole/fan above it also. I think the gpu suffers either way with this case because there's no vents above it, so modification might be the way to go.
Thanks! Your build was literally what sold me on this case and the mods I've done to it. =]
By your powers combined... I am Captain Planet!
Just updated my build, check it out here:
Hey I recently completed a mod of my Metis build, yours was my main inspiration check it out here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/ykTBD3
Nice job, very clean!
Cute build. Just out of curiousity, Is it possible to overclock that Pentium on the H81?
Excellent build. Love the hex mesh! Did the temps improve significantly with that mod? Also, where did you buy the hex mesh and was it hard to mod?
The bottleneck isn't that bad once you overclocked, except in games that take advantage of more cores.
This is normal behavior for Crossfire and SLI. The top card will be used as the primary display, and secondary card will only do a little bit of work. Although if you play some DX12 enabled games, the async rendering will make more use of your second card. You should look up a list of those games and see if you own any of them so you can do more testing.
I've got a single RX480 and have been contemplating a second one for a while now, so I'm curious if you think it's really worth it. Cheers!
Very awesome minimalist portable unit! How is the noise on the power supply that comes with the case?
Sweet build, very clean.
All the benchmarks online have shown that reversing the stock layout (rear exhaust) to intake gives the cpu better temps. Also the psu fans act as an exhaust, so the air flow goes from rear to bottom. It's a bit odd, but if you had the rear fan as an exhaust, you would have all negative pressure which is kind of bad.
Sweet build, this is definitely one of the more interesting mods to the layout.
It's gonna be extremely hard to fit all of that... I think you could easily do 1x ODD and maybe 1-2 2.5" mounted at the bottom... You might be able to cram a SSD on the side somewhere, but it really depends on how good you are with cable management because the space is extremely limited.
73 degrees doesn't sound too bad for the gpu. I think it's okay to get even higher than that.
Very simple and clean, nice job!
The gigabyte page for your mobo should have a support tab where you can find all the software drivers you need. There might be a mobo flasher that can run in windows because I had one for one of my older gigabyte ones. I would also suggest doing a clean install of Windows 10, and see if that helps.
No problem, I did exactly the same thing. I dig your build, it looks really awesome! Here's the latest for mine:
Nice work, very clean and elegant. What lighting kit did you use?
Beautiful build! +1
The SF600 fits perfectly, the only thing to note is that it does not come with a SFX to ATX bracket. I bought a Silverstone bracket off ebay like this:
You can also get a Corsair one from the official site. Other than that, the PSU fits perfectly, and there is enough space around it to route cables behind it in any direction. Let me know if you have anymore questions, thx!
No, it's a pc peripheral. One of these:
There's a small opening where you screw in the graphics card on the back bracket. The usb is connected to the backside ports on the mobo, you have to route the cable in before the thumbscrews go back on the gpu bracket.
Sick build, maybe try one of these: http://mnpctech.com/gpu-support-bracket/
Those might help with the gpu sag.
I don't remember exactly, but I got either 23xx or 24xx on Unigine Heaven benches when my CPU was clocked a little bit higher before.
I think the liquid cooler h80i uses that header, also thanks!
Forgot to mention... the usb 2.0 port on the right of the front panel isn't connected to anything because I don't think there's a free port for it on the mobo. I originally took it off but it left an awkward hole so I put it back when I redid the cable management recently.
Nice job! I think if you don't mind the ds4 controller, you could even forgo the xbox wireless receiver and use that with the ds4windows app to get xinput, since your motherboard already has a bluetooth/wifi chip built in.
Great build! Where did you get the plexiglass and is it easy to drill the holes yourself? I'd like to mod my metis build with the same thing, thanks!
The cpu is OC'able. I have it running on a gigabyte x79 up4 board @ 4.6ghz on my main comp.
Yep, but I prefer the backwards look. I don't think it affects airflow or anything.
I just realized, I think I picked the wrong ram, it's actually the low profile Corsair DDR3's. I wasn't able to fit the second fan on the heatsink (on the RAM side) with the other ones I had before. It was one of the G.Skill ones with the tall red heatspreaders.
